TRP - Listen Live
The Right Perspective with Frank of Queens and John of Staten Island, opinions that are as subtle as an iceberg in a shipping lane fly fast and furious on all topics. Frank and John’s combination of hard-hitting no-holds-barred honesty, knowledge of current and historical events, passion, common sense, and facts, Liberal arguments dissolve like an aspirin under Niagara Falls. That is why it wasn’t long after the dawn of talk radio that Frank and John became likely the most well known callers to talk radio, locally, and perhaps even nationally.
Frank is known by many as possibly “The Greatest Caller in the History of Talk Radio,” and John has been dubbed “Talk Radio’s One-Man S.W.A.T. Team“. Frank of Queens is an arsenal of historical knowledge and a brilliant observer of current events. It will not be too long before new listeners realize how Frank’s profound commentary has aroused the nick name, “Vintage Frank”.
John’s tell-it-like-it-is delivery in his phone calls to talk shows over the years has endeared him to those who agreed and invoked anger and outrage from those who disagreed. It is often wondered how John comes up with all the facts, dates, and sources to validate his or Frank’s commentary on so many issues. John explains,“There is no need for conservatives to lie, fabricate, or distort. Liberals have to because everything they believe goes against human nature and history has proven them to be wrong on almost every major issue. I do not lie or make up anything I speak about for one good reason, once someone discovers that you have lied to them or been cutesy with the facts, they will never believe anything you say from that point on.” A knockout blow can easily be administered when facts and sources are consistently at his fingertips. The greatest enemy of the political “left” are facts! Liberals have taught John that since they choose to believe what they want, John keeps a notebook computer close by to pull up facts on almost any political subject. His database is constantly being updated as history unwinds.
The empathy that listeners had for Frank and John, that is, someone finally speaking the unspoken truth and expressing what they had been feeling for so long, had listeners asking hosts: “Did Frank of Queens or John of Staten Island call yet? ”. Some hosts didn’t like the fact that listeners would be more interested in a caller than the host, and they like it even less now that the best-known callers to talk radio have become hosts!
At first, Frank and John only knew of each other through radio, but had never spoken directly. Eventually, they were invited to appear as guests on a number of shows, including one of the founders of talk radio, Barry Farber. On one of these occasions with John as Barry Farber’s in-studio guest, Frank called the show giving John his first opportunity to speak directly with him and tell Frank he had been a fan of his for years. They stayed in close contact and became best of friends.
During the glory days of talk radio in the early ‘90s, there was no limit to the number of shows Frank and John could call, but after Bill Clinton blamed the Oklahoma City bombing on talk radio in an attempt to silence many of his critics, things changed. Talk station managers and producers actually let Clinton’s opportunistic drivel intimidate them. Outspoken callers, and especially the most popular regular ones, including Frank and John, were suddenly given less time to express their opinions, passed over by the call screeners, and eventually, it was made clear that they were not welcome and banned from many stations. In fact, callers in general had become an afterthought. Talk shows became, at least it seemed, to be just for the host or hosts. They continued to take calls but it seemed that every caller was told “You have thirty seconds.” or “We’re up on a break, make it quick.. etc.” The “silent hang up” became the standard to shorten calls and dispense with any real give and take. Real conversation all but disappeared.
Frank and John became tired of this censorship and when an opportunity arose to partake in a talk show of their own with two other friends, “The Right Perspective ” was born on a small local station. The program had a brief but brilliant run and eventually moved to short wave and then online streaming via the Internet.
Bob Grant dubbed Frank from Queens "Vintage Frank"
Frank and John have co-hosted the show for nearly eight years, with many listeners and callers of mainstream talk radio becoming faithful listeners. The callers are once again part of the show as real conversation has returned to the airwaves. These guys offer-up talk radio that hasn’t been heard in years! The only thing you’ll hear on this show is good old fashioned, God fearing, butt-kicking Americanism! Listen and tell your friends you found the real thing.
The best part of Tte Right Perspective is that callers to the show are once again looked upon as an asset instead of an afterthought, which seems to be the case on so many mainstream talk radio shows today. That is why Frank and John, who were well-known callers for years themselves, decided to get their own show. “Fair and Balanced” on The Right Perspective simply means you have the right to agree or disagree! There is no concern about a need to present the “other side” of issues because everyone is encouraged to express whatever opinion they like. Therein lies the “balance.” However, if you’re going to disagree with these guys you better have your ducks in order. When listening, nothing short of the Truth is given; Frank and John deliver the real thing.
Battle On, Patriot Battle On!
